Greaves in­spires a vi­tal vic­tory

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Craig Phillips STAR MAN: Joel Lo­gan (FC United) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★

FC UNITED re­sponded to a tur­bu­lent week off the pitch with vic­tory – and spoiled Dino Maam­ria’s first game in per­ma­nent charge of fel­low strug­glers Nuneaton Town.

The Red Rebels parted ways with their only man­ager in their 12 year his­tory, Karl Marginson, on Tues­day but pop­u­lar striker Tom Greaves took on the role of care­taker and got the three points they needed.

Greaves looked like he had opened the scor­ing in the first half but his ef­fort was ruled offside, just be­fore Ja­son Gilchrist took ad­van­tage of poor mark­ing to head the home team in front.

Nuneaton came into the game without an away league win all sea­son and they were only de­nied a way back into the game by sev­eral great stops from Lloyd Allinson.

But the Reds in­creased their lead just af­ter the hour mark as Jor­dan Fag­bola got the fi­nal touch af­ter a scram­ble.

Sub Cal­lum Ball got a late goal back for Nuneaton and de­spite some close ef­forts right at the death it was the home team who took the points.

FC United have now lost just once in their last four league games.
